Our top 5 Valentine's Card photo ideas

Posted in

This year, give a card that only you could create - a card worth keeping.

Valentine's Day card

Our phones, computers and old photo albums are full of photos that mean the world. Which will you choose?

Make sure it arrives on time - check international delivery dates for postcards and greeting cards here

 

1. Your happiest moment

Your wedding day? A particular moment on holiday? That silly photo you took in the kitchen last week? Whatever jumps to mind, it will make your card special.

2. When you were young(er)

There's something uniquely wonderful about old photos. Remind him or her about a happy moment with your card photo. Tip: no need for a scanner - just take a photo of the photo!

An old photo :)

3. Favourite photo of you both

When you send a photo as a glossy postcard, people keep them. Which photo would they really love to have?

Favourite photo :)

4. The best selfie!

Somehow, selfies seem to make the best portraits. And let's be honest, you've got plenty of romantic or funny ones to choose from!

Best selfie!

5. Include everyone

Which friends or family would also love a postcard? Whether they love or hate Valentine's day, a postcard will make them smile.

A postcard of a postcard

Ok, so we know what a wonderful surprise it is when a postcard drops through the letterbox with a photo of loved one.

We also know how great it is when somebody sends you a postcard back in return. And I think this is one of the best possible return postcards. 

I'm not sure how more happiness could ever fit into a 6x4" piece of glossy card :-)

Thanks @AllanaGaitanis for sharing this!

Where Touchnote Postcards Live - 10 Photos

Posted in

Recently we invited users to share with us photos of their postcards proudly on display.

We absolutely loved seeing out postcards in more places than we could have imagined! Here are just 10 examples - thanks all for letting us share these:

1. In the Kindle

I always thought the best feature of Kindles was the gorgeous, monochrome power-off image from a classic book. However, Harriet Beecher Stowe pales in comparison to the goregous postcard kept in the case!

Touchnote postcard kept in a Kindle

2. A beautiful mantlepiece

Nothing says "pride of place" like the mantlepiece. And we love how the postcard of the gorgeous little one stands out!

3. Behind beers

People often say they send postcards with photos to remind of good times. This one is certainly sitting in the right place!

4. Making a cool fridge even cooler

This is a seriously stylish fridge - I can't pretend not to be a bit jealous. Also jealous of the amazing Ewok fridge magnet - it's almost as cute of the photos on the postcards!

5. Making the desk more beautiful

There are many things we love about this photo: The smiles, the bow tie, how it makes sitting at work at nicer experience for this user... but most my personal favourite is seeing a Touchnote email sneak into the shot!

6. A happy collection for dad

A user sent us this lovely photo, saying he helps keep his elderly dad's spirits up with a series of Touchnote postcards. We love that our postcards have made it into this collection :-)

7. Around the door

Sometimes, the fridge and the mantelpiece just aren't big enough. I bet people are always pausing to loo at all the gorgeous photos on display as they pass through...

8. Vertical art

A small space on the wall becomes a long line of awesome.

9. A cork board on the other side of the world

This lovely user sends her mum postcards, all the way to New Zealand. And when they arrive, they go on the cork board in the living room. This makes us happy (and no doubt they lucky mum, too)

10. Improving artwork

How do you make a beatiful piece of artwork more beautful? By adding some beautiful postcards, of course!

 

Do you have a photo you'd like to share with us? Please post it on our Facebook Page, Tweet it, or post it with the #touchnote hashtag on Instagram. We love seeing postcards out in the wild!
